Summary:"What happens when women tell their own stories in film? In What if I had been the hero?, Sue Thornham addresses this question through an exploration of a wide range of films, from experimental feminist film to mainstream Hollywood, and from the 1970s to the present day, by film-makers including Sally Potter, Jane Campion, Deepa Mehta, Patricia Rozema and Lynne Ramsay. Her discussion takes in films from India and Argentina as well as Europe, Canada, Australia and the US."--Page 4 of cover.
